State Senate to vote on naming western span of Bay Bridge

A plan to name the western span of the Bay Bridge after former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown could get the green light.

The state Senate could vote on the resolution renaming the span on Tuesday.

The proposal has been contentious with vocal opponents and proponents sounding off on the plan.

If the Senate approves the resolution, the span could be called the Willie L. Brown Junior Bridge.

The name only applies to the suspension bridge connecting San Francisco to Yerba Buena Island, not the new eastern span that opened last week.
